SIAA Member, Convergent Smart Technologies - Smart Toilet System in the news!


Six toilets at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands have received the six-star rating from the Restroom Association of Singapore - the first toilets in Singapore to be awarded its top rating. In one of the six-star toilets at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, for instance, there is a detector which measures the level of ammonia in the air and relays this information to cleaners via SMS. Once odour levels exceed a certain threshold, a text message will be sent to the cleaners with information about which toilet is affected. This tech solution with the ammonia detectors is provided by Singapore company, Convergent Smart Technologies.
